Product Collaboration Overview
SolidWorks product collaboration tools help members of your design team work closely with other project stakeholders. SolidWorks software also provides ways to protect your designs before sharing them beyond your organization and to manage project data and control design revisions. SolidWorks product collaboration tools include:
- Large Design Review—Quickly open, navigate, walk-through, measure, section, and create snapshot views with comments of massive assemblies to clearly communicate the design to your team
- eDrawings® file viewing—Simultaneously review 2D drawing and 3D model data together using compact, email-friendly file viewing that supports SolidWorks, DWG™, and numerous other CAD formats, with multiple design views including rotate, zoom, measure, mark-up, section, and virtual disassembly
- Defeature: Protect your intellectual property —Use SolidWorks Defeature technology to hide selected aspects of your design before sharing models
- SolidWorks file management —Use Workgroup PDM to manage project data with secure file vaulting, automated revision control, and user/group access control. For more advanced PDM capabilities (like multiple sites, product release workflow control, and access by large numbers of users), see SolidWorks Enterprise PDM .
